How Texans are still paying the price for disastrous Easterby-Watson era
The Houston Texans will forfeit their original fifth-round selection in the 2023 NFL Draft and have been fined $175,000 for a salary cap reporting violation, the NFL announced Thursday.
This dates back to the Texans paying $25,000 for Deshaun Watson to use the facilities at The Houstonian in 2020, before GM Nick Caserio was hired.
The Texans still have 11 total picks, but the fifth rounder they lost could have been used to help the Texans trade up in the draft.
